Telit Communications' (LON:TCM) Wireless Solutions unit has launched a new product, which it claims is the world’s smallest penta-band HSPA+ (a type of wireless broadband) module.
The company manufactures specialist components that enable machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, and its position in the marketplace was recently bolstered by its acquisition of Motorola’s M2M division. It already manufactures the world’s smallest GSM/GPRS module.
Importantly the new module can be used on any network worldwide without the need for regional variants, Telit Wireless said.
It also highlighted that because of its small size the module is especially suitable for compact devices like e-readers or PDAs, with data-rich applications like multimedia.
“Depending on the application, even minimal advantages in size can make a huge difference in terms of usability and cost. Being able to build ultra compact modules underlines Telit’s being at the forefront of technology and design know-how,” Telit said.
The company said it is well-suited for devices with high throughput applications like mobile computing, in-car telematics, PDAs, e-readers, tablet PCs, and consumer electronics.
